Thriveworks Lemon Slice

Sylmar Counseling – Life Coaching, Mental Health Services in California

There are plenty of people out there suffering needlessly, and that’s part of why Thriveworks was founded. We set out to create a counseling practice that provided quality care with a high level of convenience and accessibility. We’ve grown from a single location to a national franchise, all offering the same great care and accessibility. If you’re suffering mentally or emotionally, contact us—we can usually schedule you within 24 hours.

Who Needs Therapy?

In truth, nearly everyone needs some level of therapy. Even those who feel generally happy and well-balanced can often use a little feedback and guidance on life changes and how they’re processing them. Some even seek counseling to help them improve on an already good life—perhaps they want to advance their career or develop stronger personal relationships.

We love seeing clients just for the sake of self-improvement, but that’s not the most common patient we see. We typically see people in deep pain, people struggling with trauma, people who have a tough time just walking outside in the morning—and we’re invested in helping them feel better. Because feeling better is absolutely possible, and Thriveworks Sylmar counseling can help.

Some people know exactly what’s wrong—perhaps you’ve lost someone close to you recently, but you’re not handling it as well as you think you should be. Or, you may have experienced a traumatic event that you need help in processing and moving past. And still some are experiencing depression, anxiety, anger, and other destructive feelings for an unknown reason—and that lack of knowledge can be incredible anxiety producing on its own.

The thing is, it doesn’t matter what the reason is—if you could feel better, we want you to contact us. If you know what’s wrong, we’ll help you develop a plan to move past it. If you don’t know what’s wrong, we’ll help you figure it out—and then develop a plan to move past it. Thriveworks Sylmar counselors are invested in helping you live the best life possible, and regardless of what’s impeding that, we’re here to walk with you as you take the journey of healing.

Why Is Therapy Helpful?

Therapy has one main goal—to help you live the most authentic, balanced life possible. This is accomplished by determining what issues are affecting you and then helping you develop the skills necessary to work past them. Crucial to this is the development of particular skills: communication skills, coping skills, and skills for managing conflict. The great thing about learning new skills is that those skills are with you for life, enabling you to eventually overcome whatever problems you’re experiencing. If you’re living with a permanent disorder or syndrome, these coping skills can allow you to live with it successfully and independently, with minimal continuing outside assistance from a therapist.

Equally important, counseling can help you retrain your thought process. It’s easy to get into a pattern of negative thinking, but Thriveworks Sylmar, CA counselors can help you retrain your thought process into more positive habits, which can be an important part of overcoming mental health struggles.

Sometimes, just talking to our friends is enough. But often, we need feedback from a neutral, experienced third party that is invested in helping you move past the struggles that are plaguing you.

Why Choose Thriveworks Sylmar CA?

Thriveworks Sylmar counselors are leading industry experts, but that doesn’t do you much good if you can’t get an appointment. That’s why we’re open for extended hours from 8am to 9pm Monday through Friday and 8am to 5pm on Saturdays. Additionally, when you call, we’ll aim to get you an appointment within the week, if not within 24 hours.

And, though we do have a sliding scale payment option, we also accept most major insurance plans. We’ll go over your insurance benefit with you, but it’s likely you’ll be able to see a therapist for just the cost of your copay.

If you’ve been struggling, whether or not you know why, give us a call. Thriveworks Sylmar CA counselors are experienced, caring professionals here to help you overcome your struggles and become the best version of yourself possible.
